How cold was it?

I can most assuredly tell you that the mountains of Washington County Vermont in February are crazy COLD.  The day we set this house it was minus 12 degrees when we started at 8:00 in the morning.  YUP, it really was bitter cold.  But, it wasn’t all that bad because the sun was shining brightly and there was absolutely no wind.

The town has sanded the road, so everything was moving along quite nicely.  The crane arrived, everyone gulped down their last drop of coffee and away we went setting this home in the 13th of February.  Did I mention it was COLD ?  The good news was that we were all convinced it couldn’t possibly get worse.


By noon the temperature had climbed to 20 degrees, the sun was gone in behind heavy clouds, and the wind was howling at more than 25 miles an hour.  The afternoon was far worse than the morning.

The house was very successfully set, everything worked out far better than we had hoped, and Vermont Modular chalked up another victory; everyone was pleased, and that family is comfortable in their Custom Built Modular.  We were cold, very cold, but at the end of the day it was a huge success.

How can we help you get your new Vermont Dream Home?  Just the other day we ordered another home for a December delivery.  That could easily be you.
